  • Control What You Can, Release the Rest

    There’s a massive wildfire burning in my province right now that has forced the evacuation of the entire town of Fort McMurray, the largest evacuation in our province’s history. Yesterday, it was expected that the fire was almost under control. And then today, winds turned unexpectedly, and the fire spread faster and hotter. It’s already…

  • VIKING WARRIOR REBEL Cover reveal

    I’m so excited and pleased to be able to help with the cover reveal for my friend and fellow Dream Weaver sister, Asa Maria Bradley’s second book in her fantastic Viking Warriors series. Isn’t it gorgeous??? I love that while the first book had a super sexy guy, here we get all female power. 🙂…

  • Read it: FURIOUSLY HAPPY

    Have you read this book yet? If not, go on out and get it. Seriously. I actually bought the book for my mom for Christmas, because frankly the raccoon on the cover was kind of irresistible, reviews were good, and it looked like fun. After she was finished with it, she recently lent it to…

  • Music to Give You a Boost

    Geez, I’ve been terrible at posting regularly, haven’t I? Sorry about that. So hello out there! Today I have a treat for you. 🙂 I’ve been working on putting together my playlist of “happy music.” Actually, I have a few of these, and I’ve now put together a list on Spotify. Happy, inspirational, fight-on type…

  • Creative Resistance: Letter to my WIP

    I know I’ve done this before, written a letter to my WIP. This is, however, a new WIP, and seemingly, a new problem – or perhaps a similar problem and different way of dealing with it? Either way: confessedly this is how I’m not currently writing. 😉 Dear Draft 1 WIP, We both know things…

  • Plotting Board 1.5

    There’s a small pile of chocolate wrappers on my daily log book and in front of my new plotting board, clear evidence the whole pre-plotting isn’t making the first draft completely easy-peasy, but it’s still coming along. 😉  So since I last posted, I’ve made some alterations to my plotting board, things that made it…

  • Plotting Board 1.0

    So this year, as I get back into more serious writing, I continue to experiment with my method. Yes, I’m probably looking for the perfect fit that lets me produce the best books I can, and I thought I’d share my latest experiment. 😉  This is my first plotting board, aka Plotting Board 1.0. Now,…

  • Confession Time…

    Confession Time…

    So here’s the thing … I like setting goals. I like new starts (mostly.) I love seeing the end of December (because honestly, after you’ve survived it–as wonderful as much of it is–nothing is better than seeing it done.) I do NOT like January. There. I’ve said it. I’ve put it out there. January and…

  • Hello 2016!

    Hello 2016!

    Happy New Year, and welcome to 2016!! First up: apologies that it’s been ages since I last posted (just before or after the RWA National Conference in July, I think.) Anyway, life kind of intervened. I now have a second kidlet, an almost finished basement, and a new book / series. For now, I’m working…
